Misha Aloyan completed the World Boxing Super Series bantamweight lineup yesterday, and now the final slot of the super lightweight field has been filled. Frank Warren confirmed today that former lightweight champion Terry Flanagan has signed on for the upcoming tournament.

The complete roster:

Ivan Baranchyk
Anthony Yigit
Kiryl Relikh
Eduard Troyanovsky
Ryan Martin
Josh Taylor
Regis Prograis
Terry Flanagan

“Turbo” (33-1, 13 KO) enjoyed a long, if not particularly star-studded reign as WBO Lightweight Champion, defending the belt five times before moving up to 140 earlier this year. He took on Maurice Hooker for the vacant belt just last month and lost a competitive split decision.

This lineup includes six members of BoxRec’s top 10, two world champions, and two others who will be fighting for a vacant belt in their quarterfinal matchup. Not bad at all. We’ll have the opening matchups for you on Friday, so be sure to stop by.
